To be perfectly honest I went out that day for marketing reasons, at least that’s how the day started, but it ended completely different. 

A long time ago, when I first started my career as a ‘professional photographer’ I strayed from my ‘formula’ of crafting images; which had been to simply walk around the forest until something made me say ‘awe’, and then to photograph it.  But in the beginning I thought I needed to photograph what would ‘sell’.  Guess what, they didn’t.  So I went back to doing what I had always done, which was to stumble around the wilds until I saw an ‘awe’ moment. 

Basically the day started with me going out, searching out something that I thought could be marketed using the 11.11.11 date as if it were unusual for some reason, it wasn’t, it was just a date.  I was struggling to ‘find’ ‘something’ ‘anything’.  That’s when I stumble into this spot, where I went ‘awe.’

See Ya On the Trail!
